The term “Hazcom” is frequently used in the chemical world, but what does it mean? Hazard communication, or Hazcom for short, has historically been associated with the combined use of safety data sheets (SDS), labels, and training to protect the health and safety of workers when using chemicals in the workplace.  In many countries, the obligation to provide SDS is limited to hazardous chemical products used in workplaces; however, there is a growing trend for retail establishments to request SDS for all products, such as cosmetics, and articles, even though they may be exempt.
